If you are reading this you are obviously feeling a bit like a headless chicken blogger. Ah yes I know that feeling. You write an amazing blog post, you want to crow from the roof top. Hit the publish button, scuttle off to tweet it, link it to Facebook, pin it on Pinterest and add it to one of the 4 trillion linkys you take part in every week. Sit back on your perch, fluff up your feathers and wait for the views to come into roost.
What no one has noticed your frankly clucking marvellous piece of writing? Surely someone wants a piece of this free-range action. It’s ok keep your pecker up. The internet is unfortunately like a battery house. Lots of chickens laying lots of eggs, and none of them are hatching.
It gets you scratching about for ideas. But you have to be careful not to ruffle anyone else’s feathers. You don’t want to end up in a troll pie. But you could definitely handle a viral post comparable to chicken pox. You squeeze out another egg. Cross your claws, and check those stats with your beedy eye… Surely that egg was a double yoker? The blog posts of all blog posts, a pinnacle moment in a chicken, sorry bloggers, life.
Nope, it wasn’t. It didn’t hit everyone’s spot like a fresh bucket of KFC. It made an impression on a few but it has gone mostly unnoticed. See being a chicken blogger is a bit like being a chicken. Once cooked you taste just like everyone else unless you have an amazing sauce to chuck over the top. We are all battery hens in a blogging coop – but a few of us will find our sauce. Will it be you?
